roll bar for the bed of the truck?

i forget who it is, but someone on here has a pretty cool lookin roll bar, i think its like a polished finish or something. and then it has a spare mount on the bars that go down the back if that makes any sense.

i had the site for it bookmarked on my old computer, but have no idea about how to go about finding it now

i asked him about it as I like it as well...He got it made custom by gorhino a few years ago. Unfortunately they no longer take custom orders. I called them myself to find out if there was anyway to get it. I did found out that I could order the stake hole mounting plate and plug to see about fabbing up my own. Other than that good luck...

the weird part about that roll bar is that the corners are the only section that are made of tubing. The straight parts are made of formed flat metal.

I was shaking my head when i read the thread title...But to my surprise It doesnt look bad at all. I think the tire mounted up there makes it even better! head on over to a toyota dealer and bring you a tape measure

that looks killer, i've never really liked the roll bars, but that i might actually get! except i would put it in, in a way it's removeable, incase i need to use my bed for something, like if i had a truck...

It is made by Go Rhino It is called a xtreme pre runner rack. I ordered it a few years back at a local 4x4 shop they did a custom order took all the measurements and had it a few months later.
The funny thing is the instructions that came with it stated it was for a ranger short bed 93-current. I have only seen it on one other ranger and that was a show truck for some suspension company.
